Mike Cenci is the Deputy Chief of Fish and Wildlife Police and oversees land and marine operations west of the Cascades. He has been with the agency for three decades.
He also worked as a Deputy Sheriff in a rural county, and as a U.S. Special Agent with NOAA Fisheries.
Mike has two daughters who, at ages 11 and 15, love the outdoors. Herding them back indoors is a constant struggle, but less challenging then convincing them the concept of catch and release is not a government conspiracy.
